Leadership in Public Arenas

Public leadership is a male domain in Aymara rural communities, but women are occasionally elected to a public office. Some jobs, like the Promoter of a Mother's Club, are designated for women by outside agencies. Traditionally, men were the sponsors of fiestas, with their wives helping with food and hosting, but today a woman who is a head of household may take on the host role for a day of festivities. One representative from each household speaks at community meetings, so these speakers are mostly, but not exclusively, men. Women tend to sit on the sidelines at community meetings and throw in short frequent comments, while men stand in the center and make longer speeches.
